At Taller General we address our personal motivations or concerns through architecture. Two themes will be developed during the conference. On the one hand, the issue of gender, since it is a point of conflict that we experience day by day, in an ultra-hegemonic and patriarchal context, such as the field of design and construction. On the other hand, displacement and human mobility faced by millions of people in transit through Latin American countries, often with no place to arrive or stay. Scenarios that lead us to (re)think: who has the opportunity to build? What are the alternatives we have, les arquitectes? How can you make a contribution to communities on the move through architecture? From these issues, the days of participatory construction with a gender perspective emerge: Femingas, intended for us who find ourselves displaced, invisible, and faced with access barriers in terms of design, construction or spatial modification; and the Humanx Temporary Shelter in El Juncal (northern border of Ecuador) for people in mobility.
Taller General is a confluence space where we channel our practice through architectural work. Composed by: Martín Real, architect by Puce, and Master in Architecture – Integral Projects at Uisek, and Florencia Sobrero, architect by UNC, Master in Gender and Communication by Uasb.
